Break

The day dragged as the chores kept piling.

Laundry.

Dishes.

Dinner.

My cup of dark roast with a hit of hazelnut is my only solace in the mayhem of life. The robust flavor filled my waning soul as I gazed out at the quiet of the afternoon. I closed my eyes allowing the wafts of hazelnut to surround the rest of my senses. I could stay in this moment forever.

Beep! Beep! Came from a stopping bus.

A door slammed in room behind me.

“Mom!”

“Mom! What’s for dinner?”

And just like that my coffee break was over.
